Blogger's Challenge #35: Color Challenge!


The color combo for this challenge was Purely Pomegranete, Old Olive and Brilliant Blue...Whoa! That IS a challenge. But, once I sat down, my card came together quite quickly!

I used a set called Bugs and Kisses...I LOVE this set! I stamped three of the bugs in the three colors and punched them out with my 1 1/4 inch square punch, added a little ink around the edges with a sponge dauber and layered them on their respective cardstock colors and punched that out with the 1 3/8 inch square punch. I made a "faux filmstrip" from Brilliant Blue by punching the edge with my Spiral punch. On the background, I used the phrase Cute as a Bug in Old Olive on the Old Olive card and positioned it with my Stamp a Majig. My intent was to do the whole background but I stopped and decided I liked this "strip" look! I added Olive 5/8" ribbon and Double Stitched Purely Pomegranete ribbon and finished off the card by stamping the phrase just one more time with Basic Black. My Brilliant Blue is showing up a little purple. Maybe I can try to take a better pic later today!

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the link to the other challenges!
